3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ugly to awesome! on: April 11, 2011 07:48:31 AM
Picked up this super cute fabric at the local fabric store for $1/yd!! I didn't know what I was going to use it for but I figured, hey it's only $1... I will find something for it!!

THEN it hit me. Reupholster the kitchen chairs!!

So here is an ugly kitchen chair and my beautiful new chair (going to finish the rest of them this week! )


and the awesome chair by itself


excuse the mess in the background... I was in the process of cleaning, then got crafty side tracked!!

 Grin

C&C please!!

WELL...

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft my favorite quote- swap on: March 22, 2011 01:05:02 PM


Not too sure what I would call it... but would anyone be interested in "crafting quotes"?

I was thinking something like we give a few of our favorite quotes and our partner can incorporate it into some sort of craft, ie: embroidered on a pillow, in a hoop, on a painting, scrapbook style.
I made one for a partner in a swap... see below for an example

made with paints and magazine cut out letters

What do you think?!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Hanging Mother's Day present on: March 02, 2011 08:25:54 PM
Not sure if this is the right place for this, if it is not... please let me know!!

I made this for Mother's Day for my mom a few years ago.

It is all hand stitched and the flowers are hand sewn fabric flowers.



C&C?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / two wire wrapped stones on: March 02, 2011 08:23:19 PM
Hi guys!

I have been testing the waters on all different/new crafts and have gotten a little into wire wrapping.

I made these for my MIL


C&C please!!
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / some pieces throughout the years- pic heavy!! on: March 02, 2011 08:21:21 PM
I'm a new poster to this community, but wanted to share some of the things I have created!! C&C much appreciated!!!

My first "real" piece, splatter painting


This one, kind of happened by accident. I was making the square pattern and spilled my cup of water on it... so I was dabbing it dry with a piece of papertowel and a heart was formed in the yellow square!!
(sorry for the crappy picture, was taken a long time ago!)


This was made last Valentine's day for my hubby. It is a small splatter painting with a picture of us and I love you in 4 different languages


Made this for our bedroom


For the bedroom...


Again, for the bedroom!


Made these for my Star Swap partner!


And lastly... made this for my other partner in the Star Swap!


Sorry for all the pictures!! Still newish to the site and trying to get all of my stuff our there!!

Enjoy  Grin
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / my reception in April//May on: January 14, 2011 10:52:43 AM
Hey Ladies!!

My husband and I got married November 12, 2010 in Vegas and we are going to have our reception with everyone who could not make it (which is everyone except our parents and two of my friends)

My colors are purple and orange and "theme" is "Lucky in Love" with a punk twist.

I'm thinking about having it at a local bowling alley because they have an awesome hall for very inexpensive.

I'm just having problems thinking about what to make for the table decor/favors and whatnot.

Any suggestions?

We are definitely not traditional, so not sure if the flower centerpieces are right right idea...

I have seen some things but nothing I really love yet.

Any suggestions or help?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 5 recon tops on: January 07, 2011 08:01:14 AM
Hey ladies!
I'm still new on here but I did these 5 tops recently!
